Napkin Sketch

Cité Radieuse - Mistral
ECAL for Appartement 50
Thomas Elliott Burns and Katarzyna Kempa


In September of 2014, our class visited the Unité d'Habitation as a starter for the project. While there we drew on inspiration from the building and also from direct observation of the residents of Appt. 50.

This particular unit is a south facing, decendant appartement, which means you enter in the kitchen area and then decend to the rest of the rooms. During our visit to the apartment, both Kasia Kempa and I noticed the need for air circulation in the kitchen, which was hot and stuffy. Having worked together before on the Scott Bicycle project, we decided to team up again and develop a fan for this area.
